I love this Otter from the Retro Cuties collection from Paper Makeup Stamps.
I cant believe i havent had a chance to color her up yet!! I mean she was released MONTHS ago!
hahaha! I also used the sketch from last week's sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers...
Obviously, it's becoming pretty obvious that my most recent paper obsession is Echo Park! I love love love this paper company! And having gotten to meet them at CHA sealed the deal for me. Very nice people! I love the style of the paper, the bold rich colors without being too much! The current trends in color pairings but not so much that i cant use the papers years from now (HA, like i'll have anything left!)
I colored Olive the Otter using Copic Markers... E37, E35, E33, E30 and R30 for her cheeks.
Her apron i tried my best to match to the paper... Since i was coloring in small spaces, i let the copic colors be further apart so you can see the contrast. R32, R37; BG10, BG45, BG49' G12, G14, G40. I added some pink glitter to the top of my cupcake for just a little bit of special something!
I paired the Otter with her matching sentiment from the Cutie Critter Sayings set.
I stamped the sentiment in versamark ink and then used some Vanilla embossing powder by American Crafts over the top. It have a slight shimmer to it but it's still opaque. VERY pretty!
I should have used an embossing buddy but the added distress print texture to the paper sort of makes it all tie in. :D
You can view more takes on this sketch in the SC293 gallery on splitcoast!
Have a wonderful day!!!
